Hello Paul C., Thank you for staying at our little hotel. Our staff strives to be welcoming and helpful to every guest. We’re glad that we succeeded in doing so during your stay. We’re glad that you enjoyed our comfortable rooms and the amenities that we offer to our guests. Many guests really like having a DVD player in their rooms, especially when children are involved, along with our complimentary DVD library available 24 hours a day. Feel free to see the catalog at the front desk on your next visit. We realize that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so we try to have something for everyone in our complimentary deluxe continental breakfast. You mentioned the pancakes and waffles- they are definitely a guest favorite, along with the steel cut oats made fresh daily. Your thoughts on having the additional items added will be relayed to the owners for consideration. As you mentioned, we are in close proximity to SDSU and the freeways. We are also only 15 to 25 minutes away from most of the tourist attractions and beaches. Our front desk staff is always happy to help with printing up directions or providing information about popular places to see. We appreciate your 5 star review!
